Clutter Clichés - why they work, and why they don't

Number 1: "A place for everything and everything in its place"

Here's a good test to see if you're cluttered or not.

Set a timer to see how long it takes you to find and lay your hands on the following common household items...

  • your passport
  • the spare front door key
  • your address book
  • your last bank statement
  • an envelope and a stamp

less than five minutes? fantastic you're pretty decluttered, and efficiently organised

more than five minutes? You're probably already wasting time on a daily basis looking for things you've lost.

Having a home for everything, and making sure things go back there really does make sense. It will save you so much time, wasted energy and stress.
